Staining Your Log Home.
Work Horizontally. Plan on applying your stain to one wall at a time, starting at the top and working completely across 3-4 logs high.
When the top 3-4 logs are stained, then move down the wall to the next 3-4 logs. Continue in a similar pattern to the bottom of the wall, working around doors and windows.
Clean any drip marks that may occur on lower logs to avoid overlap marks.
This consistency will help to eliminate the possibility of lap marks.
Very Important to keep a "wet edge" without stopping, in the middle of the log is necessary, simply "feather out" the stain when you need to stop in the middle of a wall, trailing it off into nothing to help minimize lap marks.
If spraying on the stain always always back brush in the stain. Very Important!
Always clean your bushes really good! If a oil based stain clean with mineral spirits, water base stain with soap and water.
